  3. Building and Development Services Department Director is authorized to sign satisfactions of liens if the recording fees are paid.

Background Discussion

Staff is requesting the fine reduction.  This case was handled by an officer that is no longer with the county. The respondent requested additional time for compliance, but that request was not noted in the code enforcement system so the request could be processed. The respondent complied twelve (12) days after the compliance date in good faith.

  1. Violation:  Trash & Debris on the property.
  2. Notice of Violation issued on 12/28/2016
  3. Compliance date was March 30, 2017.
  4. Fines for this case totaled $900.00.
  5. Staff is requesting that the fine be reduced to $0.00.
  6. Special Magistrate Mitigation hearing was April 26, 2017.  The Magistrate determined that justification exists to reduce the total fine amount and to forward the request to the Board of County Commissioners with a recommendation to reduce the fine amount totaling $900.00 to $0.00 and $28.50 recording fee to settle the case.  Staff recommends approval.
